This is so entertaining.


1. Ask for help

2. Compare those you need help from to a lower order primate.

3. Claim you provided information you did not

4. Explain that providing any information would be "too revealing"

5. ???


Can't wait to hear what comes next, but please keep it up.  This is a bright spot in my day.

I did write a long email in response to you.
But then I deleted it because I felt it would be too revealing.

You are implying  Spark could be. 


What direction are you headed in, exactly? I don't feel as if anything were implied when you were asked for use cases or what problem you are solving. You were asked to identify some use cases, of which you don't appear to have any.

That's what  I want to know,  Use Cases.
I am looking for  direction as I described and I want to know  if Spark is headed in my direction.  

You are implying  Spark could be.

So tell me about the USE CASES and I'll do the rest.

It depends on your use case. What are you trying to solve?

I consider myself to be quite good in Software Development especially using frameworks.

I like to get my hands  dirty. I have spent the last few months understanding modern frameworks and architectures.

I am looking to invest my energy in a product where I don't have to relying on the monkeys which occupy this space  we call software development.

I have found one that meets my requirements.

Would Apache Spark be a good Tool for me or  do I need to be a member of a team to develop  products  using Apache Spark  ?
